Malcolm McLaren died from cancer at 64 this week. I never really was into punk rock, it was like rock'n'roll with an infection! At the time it was very aggressive, but didn't last long. It seemed to me to be all about dressing with safety pins and shouting. Didn't he run for Mayor of London? Rest in peace, Malc.
